On December 19, 2011, Chief Justice Charles T. Canady signed an order that terminated Florida’s mandatory foreclosure mediation program. The program was originally established as a means for the court system to address the overwhelming number of mortgage foreclosure cases coming through the system, and level the playing field between foreclosure victims and big banks.
This is another huge win for big banks. Cases already referred to and pending mediation prior to December 19, 2011 will remain in the program through completion of mediation. After the date of the order, no new cases may be referred to Florida’s Foreclosure Mediation Program.
